There isn’t a lot of drama about where Trevor Lawrence will be drafted but there are plenty of different opinions about where Travis Etienne will go.
In this edition of What They Are Saying we look at what is being said on Twitter about Etienne and where he might land in the NFL draft.

If Najee Harris is picked before the Steelers are on the board and Travis Etienne out of Clemson is available should the Steelers draft him or go in another direction? pic.twitter.com/licw6CSqFp

📺 In this video snippet from the latest Prospect Podcast, I explain why I have Najee Harris > Travis Etienne in my RB rankings for the 2021 NFL Draft, and @MatthewColler gives great insight on the value for both RBs in today's NFL https://t.co/8e19V9Yt9X

I recently updated my rookie rankings and moved Travis Etienne up to #1 overall. I may be in the minority here, but I see him being a can't miss running back. Capable in all phases. https://t.co/kenAdjdkLt pic.twitter.com/d9Wb5rWwtj

Happy Friday, @AtlantaFalcons fans. Questions are in and some of the topics include:
• Drafting RBs too high 🤔
• Falcons franchise tag options 💰
• Are Kyle Pitts and Kyle Trask options? 🐊
• How good is Travis Etienne? 👀

Of course, that’s assuming Najee is RB1. I think that list can be mostly applied to the first RB taken, whether it’s him, Travis Etienne or Javonte Williams.
However, I think Najee’s stock will likely trend upward. I could easily see his range becoming, say, 16-32.

Steelers passing up both Najee Harris and Travis Etienne yet get as good of a running back?

You know why Travis Etienne is my rookie pick 1.01? Speed and acceleration. The pull-away speed that he has is reminiscent of Bo Jackson, Chris Johnson. The run in the video against Louisville (below) was his second ever touchdown in college. Amazing. #ETN #NFLDraft #RookieDraft pic.twitter.com/v0jC9vQZaq
